Chisholm Trail - Page 2

Sew the Color 2 squares and two half squares together to make a four patch unit, using scant 1/4" seams. Press seams to darker sides...

Now lay out all units as shown at left. Sew three horizontal rows, pressing the top and bottom row seams to the outside, and the middle row seam to the center. Sew the rows together and you are all done! 

Here are four rows of flour blocks each in a simple wall hanging!

Happy Quilting Folks!

The Chisholm Trail was a historic trail used in the late 19th century in the western United States for cattle drives. The trail ran for 800 miles from South Texas to Abilene, Kansas and was used from 1867 to 1887 to drive cattle northward to the railhead of the Kansas Pacific Railway, where they were shipped eastward. The trail was named after Jesse Chisholm who had built a number of trading posts in what is now western Oklahoma before the American Civil War

Shirley writes..."I truly enjoyed the last block "Chishom Trail" with the bit of history.  My Grandmother was a hand quilter born in 1900 and had wonderful stories to tell. Her fine stitches were admired by many.  This block brought back great memories of her sitting at her home made quilting frame and telling her stories. Thanks again for all the enjoyment you have provided to me personally."  Shirley
